  • Yay.
  • Extra!Extra! Read all about it. I have the latest news for the comparisons between "Homeless" and "The Treasure of Lemon Brown.'
  • Can't wait.
  • Really?
  • "The Treasure of Lemon Brown"- :... yellowed newspaper clippings and a battered harmonica....They told of Sweet Lemon Brown, a blues singer and harmonica player who was appearing at different theaters in the South.... I used to travel around and make money for to feed my wife and Jesse that's my boy's name....Then his mama died, and he stayed with his mama's sister. He growed up to be a man, and when the war he saw for to go off and fight in it. I didnt have nothing to give him except these things that told him who I was, and what he came from."
  • Both texts contain the authors craft technique, story within a story. "Homeless"- "Her name was Ann, and we met in the Port Authority Bus Terminal several Januarys ago. I was doing a story on homeless people.... she rummaged through a tote bag and a manila envelope and finally unfolded a sheet of typing paper and brought out her photographs.... They were pictures of a house.... The house was yellow.... She had a house, or at least once upon a time had one. Inside were curtains, a couch, a stove, potholders. You are where you live. She was somebody."
  • I read this great newspaper that talked about the Imagery regarding the characters appearance in "Homeless" and "The Treasure of Lemon Brown".
  • "Homeless"- "She was not adrift, alone, anonymous, although her bags and her raincoat with the grime shadowing its creases had made me believe she was." 
  • "The Treasure of Lemon Brown"-"The voice was high and brittle, like dry twigs being broken.... There were two feet, in cracked, dirty shoes from which rose legs that were wrapped in rags.... He was an old man. His black heavily wrinkled face was surrounded by a halo of crinkly white hair and whiskers that seemed to separate his head from the layers of dirty coats piled on his smallish frame. His pants were bagged to the knee, where they were met with rags that went down to the old shoes. The rags were held on with strings, and there was a rope around his middle."
  • In addition, there is a comparison in both readings between the author's craft technique, metaphor.  "Homeless"- "Home is where the heart is." "The Treasure of Lemon Brown"-"...heavily wrinkled face was surrounded by a halo of crinkly white hair...."
  • Hey Mom! The newspaper article states another similarity between the characters having a treasure in both "Homeless" and "The Treasure of Lemon Brown". "Homeless"- "Her name was Ann,... To prove to me that this was true, she rummaged through a tote bag and a manila envelope and finally unfolded a sheet of typing paper and brought out her photographs....They were pictures of a house....The house was yellow." "The Treasure of Lemon Brown"-"He revealed some yellowed newspaper clippings and a battered harmonica.'There it be,' he said, nodding his head.'There it be."
  • After reading the paper, there are similarities between both stories having methods of persuasions, specifically Pathos. "Homeless"-"Homes have stopped being homes. Now they are realestate." "The Treasure of Lemon Brown"- "Him carrying it around with him like that told me it meant something to him. That was my treasure, and when I give it to him he treated it just like that , a treasure."
